the orphanage closing its doors…

orph_logo_600

Very sad post from Stu Maschwitz over at ProLost.  His company, The Orphanage, is closing its doors indefinitely. Most recently, Stu and The Orphanage produced Frank Miller’s The Spirit, 300, and Sin City. Along with Shane Ross over at Little Frog in High Def, Stu’s ProLost blog has been a huge influence on my blog game, inspiring me to attempt to walk in his footsteps and share production knowledge for the sake of bettering our community and the industry.

Here’s a short, classy excerpt from Stu’s post:

It’s no accident that our company’s name described a place for people, people who may be thrown together, but who ultimately create their own destinies. Scott once described his vision of an orphanage as “a hundred success stories waiting to happen,” and that is exactly what came to pass inside our offices. We have had the privilege of working with many “Orphans” over the years, and watching them grow and take on new responsibilities has been the single greatest part of coming to work every day.

A message to the visual effects industry: You will never find a better employee than a former Orphan.

Good luck to you, Mr. Maschwitz, and to all the Orphans out there.

      Sure will. You may need to key frame your chroma key in the secondaries room depending on exposure lighting changes, etc.
